Creation of the Athletics Club Areus of the Socrates-Demosthenes School

We announce the creation of the school athletics club Areus of the Socrates-Demosthenes School.
Our School has obtained accreditation from the Quebec Athletics Federation (FQA) to begin operations in 2018-2019.
The name of the club, Areus, and its logo highlight our culture and our history, which will serve as motivation for our young people. Indeed, Areus  was a king of Sparta also known for his diplomacy and for his victories in battle. He was also a great builder.
The design of the logo was done gracefully by Guillaume Leblanc, graphic artist, whom we thank from the heart.
Three athletes from our high school, Liam Papai, Nasir Pierre and Anthony Papai will be the first athletes and pioneers of our club, who will give them incredible visibility in the sports community.
With their coach Éric Bouchard, physical education teacher, fitness teacher and certified national coach, our athletes will compete in the following disciplines: 100m, 200m, 400m, high jump, long jump and shot put .
In addition, we are sending an invitation to all graduates of École Socrates-Démosthène to join our club at the beginning of their secondary program for the year 2019-2020. We will send an official invitation to all interested students during the school year, so do not hesitate to contact Mr. Bouchard at ebouchard@hcgm.org for any information or to express your interest.
We thank our generous sponsors: the Vimont Pizza restaurant in Laval and the tire garage in Montreal.
Watch our athletes closely, because for us, it’s a great start!
